As the previous posts indicate I took a break from writing today. I took a recommendation to fiddle around with drawing out scenes from the MS. I have been mentally visualizing this story everyday since around June. When I say visualize, I mean like I see the character moving from page to page scene to scene. Often when I’m in a stump on where to take the story next, I’ll put on headphones and listen to some Mozart and watch a chubby elephant walk around Paris.
My MS is on its third total redo since August. In the wee hours of Saturday morning, I eekked to the finish of this third makeover. It felt fantastic. Now, I’m going to let it simmer before I continue the editing process.
I’ve got a need for a killer line in one paragraph during the ah-ha moment. Allowing myself to break out the oil pastels was a wonderful way to work towards that line.
Can’t wait to make the new dummy book and practice my drawing a bit more :)
Now, I’ll be spending my night watching movies and drinking wine. Ohhh the life of an author.
